Aiviq has traveled far from the frigid north, come to share news of the plight of her people as they face the cruel hoards of Grey. But she finds a world of souls struggling to survive themselves. As she seeks allies, she finds few she would call trustworthy. The only one who seems to care enough to give her any help is a hot tempered warrior monk who is so impulsive, even she doesn’t know if he’s more of a help than a liability.
In the world of New Gaius, creatures from the Grey have invaded, and humans are a dwindling species. Beings of magic and myth have manifested to protect and integrate with the last survivors. But still, the fate of humanity is uncertain in this strange, beautiful new world.
